I am storing a value to a cell, but its storing it as a String. The value will always be a number. How do i make it so the format is a number automaticaly (instead of a string)?

Thanks.

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Perhaps:

Code:
Sub ConvertToNumber()
Range("A1").NumberFormat = "General"
Range("A1") = --Range("A1")
End Sub
